Dudley's very own 'Sultan of Smut'. A consistently popular act from a larger than life and earthy performer. 'Sean's humour is not surreal, it's not wacky, it's just bl**dy funny. This is not smile humour, this is bust your gut rubber underpants stuff' (What's On) '... the big gold star of the show must be the long-haired man from Dudley. He came. He spoke. He had us curled up begging for more...' (Evening Mail) '... comedian and scriptwriter Sean Percival. His brand of comedy steers clear of the surreal and confronts realism in an explosively funny way. His down to earth act is bang up to date with its upfront attitude, no long stories, just gags galore' (Funhouse Comedy).

Now a solo headline act all over the globe, Christian uses his improvisations, sharp wit, youthful energy, guitar skills and vocal mimicry to target histrionic rock bands, musical theatre and morose indie musicians with his charming onstage confidence machine-gunning impossibly catchy tunes with hysterical lyrical content. His solo Edinburgh Festival Show, ‘Lost In Music’ was sold out, critically acclaimed and was the winner of the 'Spirit Of The Fringe' Award. In 1999 Christian started playing guitar and singing for the American comic polymath Rich Hall. High points included winning the Perrier Award in 2001 for "Rich Hall is Otis Lee Crenshaw", being on subsequent CD and DVD releases, seeing the world, appearing on stage with Seinfeld star Michael Richards and getting on Late Night with Conan O' Brien. He was a regular on a BBC radio show with the Richard Herring, called That Was Then, This Is Now that was critically acclaimed and lasted for 3 series. This led to a key role in Herring’s groundbreaking podcast, As It Occurs To Me which ran for three years and won a Chortle award for best internet comedy and appearances on Radio 2’s ‘Jammin’. 'So much biblical gusto and zest it is impossible not to be possessed by his optimistic persona' (Broadway Baby). 'If you’re a fan of Bill Bailey or Rich Hall, you’re probably a Christian Reilly fan already' (The Guardian). ‘LOLternative Rock’.
